Thanksgiving Pie Q & A - A Letter to You

Orchestrating Thanksgiving week at a pie shop is similar to driving in LA traffic at 5 p.m.  Stressful, and tough, and sometimes you find yourself pulled over on the side of the highway crying into your shirt - tired from many hours of pie baking during the busiest time of the year.  Being a small - no tiny - shop - with popularity growing by the day, means we have to limit what we can offer and provide to maintain quality over quantity and still provide as many pies as we can to as many people as possible.  So, we opened up orders based on last year's numbers, in mid-September and called it full October 20 due to skyrocketing numbers of pie orders.  We cannot squeeze in just one more pie, so please don't ask us to do so.  While we normally are able to bake a few extra for walk-ins, that won't be the case this year because of the hundreds of orders.  If you ordered and prepaid for pie, those confirmations go out the first week of November.  Pie pickups will begin November 17 until the 22nd.  If you choose a time and day and come during the incorrect time, you will risk that your pie will not be available for pickup. If you do not show up at all, there will be no refunds or replacement pies. We will be closed the weekend after because well .... we will be exhausted. However, you may still order pies for pickup beginning November 28 online, and continue to place Christmas orders.  We are dedicated to working quickly and efficiently during this time period, so you may pickup your pies and be on your busy way.  All of our time is valuable and we respect that.  Please know that during the Thanksgiving bake, we are unable to spend time with our families because we are baking for you and they live far away.  Tips are always appreciated, and kindness abounds. Cheers folks and thank you for your support of our tiny but mighty pie business.  We look forward to serving you in the future -      Tracy Ann
